Josh Woods has been announced as the new banjo player with Kim Robins & 40 Years Late. He lives in Indianapolis and grew up on the music of The Boys From Indiana.
Robins released her first CD, 40 Years Late, earlier this year and has begun touring in support with Matt Phelps on guitar, Caleb Edwards on mandolin, Holden Stephens on bass and now Woods on banjo.
They will all be heading to the studio this Fall to start work on Kim’s second project, and their first as a band.
Robins speaks highly of her new banjo picker.
Josh is a great player and a really great person. He felt like family the first moment we met. I think he will be a great addition in helping the band develop a sound that is unique to them.”
